The Wedding Planning Secrets No One Tells you

Brides-to-be!  Don't let the wedding planning blues get you down!  We know that planning the biggest, most important day of your life can be a little daunting (no pressure, right?) but here's how to get your perfect day without all the stress. 75_Bride-Prep The number one secret that nobody tells you about planning your wedding is that it doesn't have to be one hundred percent perfect.  It's a day to celebrate the love between you and the person you've chosen to spend the rest of your life with. With so much pressure put on a bride to have a picture-perfect fairytale wedding, it's easy to see why it can kind of bum you out.  Our best advice is to be flexible! If it rains on your big day or your veil tears before you put it on- just let it roll off your back because if at the end of the day, you end up married you have succeeded! Olivia1 Our next tidbit to save your sanity is that your wedding doesn't need to go according to everyone else's plan.  We know that Mom really wants you to wear her dress because it was so important to her and that your aunties will have a fit if they don't get the traditional dry white cake at the end of the night.  But the important thing to remember is that your day should reflect who you and your fiance are as a couple- so if you want to hire a taco truck in lieu of a standard sit down meal, or have your dog as your flower girl, go right ahead.  Your aunties will understand that it's your day, and they might even have (gasp) fun!  If you want to do a backwards wedding where you party first then have the ceremony at the end of the night, or wear a colored gown and walk down the aisle to rock 'n roll, then You. Go. Girl. b3 Ultimately, what we want all of our amazing brides-to-be to know is that your wedding is a celebration.  Don't let other's opinions of what they think your wedding should be keep you from having a day that is unique to you.  If you're feeling pressured to have an over-the-top wedding to impress people, take a step back and make sure that's what is really important to you.  Your guests will have gone to dozens of weddings that look all the same so why not infuse a little of your personalities into your big day to keep them on their toes and make it a day that will be special to you!  

Our Bride, Camylla!

Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Battani who were married in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony! The bride, Camylla wore a stunning ivory lace gown with a sparkly belt and a fingertip lace trimmed veil from The Bustle! One of our favorite details was the lace scalloping all along the edges of the gown from the sweetheart neckline to the long, beautiful train! She was an absolute vision and we are so thrilled to share a few of their wedding photos! The bride's hair was done by Hair by Britney, and the whole day was captured by Kendall E Lane Photography!
